“Haché is reclaiming the burger for adults”, notes a fan of this modest family- owned chain, which eschews hipster grunge, lurid lights and thundering music in favour of sophisticated interiors, shaker-style walls, pastel shades and chandeliers. It may not be hip, but the burgers themselves are top-notch: served in soft brioche or crisp ciabatta and timed to perfection, they’re “freshly made, hot and tasty”. Around 20 different types are on show, and the sheer range is astonishing: the Italian-themed steak milano is a big hit, but you could also plump for a Louisiana (including a dollop of crunchy peanut butter), jerk chicken, Asian-inspired aromatic duck, pulled pork or falafel with sweetcorn. Sides are spot-on (try the sweet-potato fries) and desserts are of the gut-busting variety (sticky toffee pudding etc). Drinks range from ‘”reasonably priced” wines to boozy milkshakes.
